If you want to pick up a Collector’s Edition of The Old Republic for a fraction of its original $150 price, check your local Best Buy. The above picture was taken at the Irvine, CA Best Buy where they had six or seven Collector’s Editions of The Old Republic on clearance for about half of its original price.
If you buy a CE before the F2P transition, you’ll still get the free month of game time. Owners of the CE will also receive an exclusive “Heroes Banner” and 1000 Cartel Coins once the game converts over to Free to Play. $75 may seem a bit steep, but you do get all the goodies including the Darth Malgus statue and the in-game items.
